CFP: Emerging Scholars Colloquium: Ongoing Research Projects

Deadline: October 31, 2021

Organized by the Emerging Scholars Forum as part of the “Ecologies – Environments – Ethics” February 18-20, 2022, Grainau, Germany 42nd Annual Conference of the Association for Canadian Studies in German-Speaking Countries (GKS)

The Emerging Scholars Colloquium will offer a space for emerging scholars to share and discuss their ongoing research projects with peers and experts. Any emerging scholar from the BA to the PostDoc level working on a dissertation or a long-term research project in or with a strong emphasis on Canadian Studies is invited to submit a proposal. Besides contributions addressing the overall conference topic of ecology, environmental studies, and ethics (please find the general CFP here), we welcome any project presentations within the field of Canadian Studies.

To ensure the exchange between emerging scholars, peers and experts, the emphasis will be on the dialogue between participants and attendees. As such, we invite proposals for brief 10-minute presentations of the main ideas of your projects and key questions for the following  20-minute discussion. This extensive exchange will allow participants to gain insightful new perspectives regarding their own projects. To provide a basis for a  stimulating discussion, participants are invited to pre-circulate a longer paper that allows for an in-depth look at issues that could not be addressed during their short presentations.

Please submit abstracts of max. 250 words and a short bio of approximately 100 words to Johanna Lederer and Manuel J. Sousa Oliveira at by October 31, 2021. If accepted, participants will be asked to submit their in-depth paper of around 2000 words by January 16, 2022. Presentations and papers should be submitted in English, French, or German.The conference is planned to be held in-person but is subject to the dynamic development of the COVID-19 pandemic.
